Fallon Health, a Worcester-based insurer and healthcare provider, has selected 15 nonprofits focused on food security and care of older adults as recipients of $200,000 in Community Impact Grants.

The grants for each organization range from $10,000 to $20,000 and are meant to address social determinants of health, according to a Tuesday press release from Fallon Health. The nonprofits are based across Massachusetts, with six in Central Massachusetts. 

“We have a responsibility to the communities we serve to enable them as they navigate the complexities of health care due to barriers including the social determinants of health,” Fallon Health President and CEO Richard Burke said in the press release. “The Community Impact Grants will help provide valuable resources at a grass roots level to those who need it most. We applaud our partners for the important work they are doing which is also closely aligned with Fallon Health’s mission.”

The Central Mass. grant recipients are Acton-based Boston Area Gleaners, North Grafton- based Community Harvest Project, Worcester-based Central Massachusetts Housing Alliance, Elder Services of Worcester Area, and Southeast Asian Coalition of Central Massachusetts, and Fitchburg-based Making Opportunity Count. 

Fallon launched its Community Impact Grants in 2004 and to-date has granted $2.4 million through the program.
